Homeowner group threatens family with jail time over purple playground

A purple playground has a Missouri homeowner group seeing red - threatening fines and jail time unless the play set is removed.

However, the homeowner group sent more letters to the family asking for the playground’s removal and threatening jail time if they did not comply.

The homeowner group requires playgrounds to be “subdued and within harmony with other colors of the community.”
